Andover Townsman: Tangled Web

Andover Townsman: Tangled Web: "'A scary reality of the Internet-driven 21st Century is that sexual predators now can stalk victims from their own homes.

My computer knowledge is extremely limited,' Himmer admitted, 'but as limited as it is, I was able to sign on to Myspace and find tons of kids that my daughter grew up with, whose parents would be appalled at what they have posted on there.'"

Sites/services such as Myspace, Facebook, and Bebo are in big trouble when this sort of article starts appearing on p. 1 of town newspapers...
